I didn't get to explore much of it, but it seemed like the same thing you would see everywhere else in cappadocia. I wouldn't go out of my way for this, but if you have spare time then by all means go for it!

This is a great hiking trail! Plenty of small caves that you can explore if you have the time. Give yourself 2-3hrs at least to fully enjoy this walk.

We came here at the end of our tour and really enjoyed looking out over the valley. There really are a ton of pigeons! Nice place to sit and watch the sunset

I've been there with my girlfriend right after a sightseeing in uchisar. The path is about 5km from the beginning just outside uchisar town centre to göreme. The walk lasted about 2 Hours but we have some rest in the middle of the route where we found a traditional turkish bar with veranda. It's been a fantastic experience because of... More

Pigeon valley was so much fun. We hiked from goreme to uchisar and saw so many great sites. We were able to freely roam and explore what we wanted. It is very open so I would recommend sun screen and bringing water! If you hike all the way through the valley from goreme you will end up at a small... More

We managed to get at lift to Uchisar to start the walk and strolled down to Goreme in about 90 minutes. It's an interesting walk although not as stunning in terms of rock formations as some of the other valleys. Although there are trees in the valley bottom they don't give much shade so early morning or later afternoon avoids... More

The valley is included in the red tour of Cappadoce, it is better to book the tours with a guide. Actually in whole land of Cappadoce pigeons have made their nets in the caverns.

My trek across pigeon valley was one of the highlights of my trip. The valley will leave you spell bound with its serenity and earth formations. Strongly recommend having a drink (or 5!) at Millstone Cave Hotels bar which offers a splendid view
